You all many remember Amy Green from a guest post she did here back in March 2011. Amy authors the blog, Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free, and brand new cookbook, Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free: 180 Easy & Delicious Recipes You Can Make in 20 Minutes or Less. The cookbook is just gorgeous and I am thrilled that I had the pleasure to review a copy and now give one away to one of my readers!
A little about Amy:
Amy Green, M.Ed., authors Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free, (www.SimplySugarAndGlutenFree.com) a blog about eating well, eliminating refined sugars and wheat, and maintaining a healthy weight. Her first cookbook, Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free: 180 Easy & Delicious Recipes You Can Make in 20 Minutes or Less, has been on Amazon’s best seller lists since its release in February 2011.
Amy has been living free from white sugar and wheat since 2004 and, as a result, is maintaining a 60+ pound weight loss. Over the years she’s learned that eating healthier doesn’t equal deprivation. She was recently interviewed on Martha Stewart Living Radio, Talk 980 USA, appeared on Channels KTEN and Channel 33 News, was featured in The Plano Profile, and will be in the April Edition of D Magazine. She is a field editor for Healthy Cooking Taste of Home, freelance writer, does recipe development, and teaches local sugar-free, gluten-free baking classes. Amy lives with her husband and four dogs in Dallas, TX.
Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free has so many appetizing recipes in it, I didn’t know where to start! I seriously needed to sit down and make a list of the different foods that I want to make from the book. I like Amy’s no nonsense approach to cooking & her methods for cutting down time spent in the kitchen; we can all use a extra time to do the things we really love to do, right? For me that is running & spending time with my family! Instead of using refined, white sugar, Amy uses a variety of sugar substitutes, such as palm sugar, agave nectar, banana, liquid stevia and more. I am thinking the Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Cake sounds like the perfect dessert to make for our Mother’s Day get together, which also happens to be the same day as my upcoming half marathon.
